Ron Paul on Navy SEAL Chris Kyle’s death: “He who lives by the sword dies by the sword”

This was tweeted a few moments ago on Ron Paul’s official account:

Just unbelievable and appalling. Can someone be much more insensitive to the death to such a great American patriot?

    And this stupid statement says everything that needs to be said about what is wrong with the Libertarians like Ron Paul. Discernment sir is thinking about what will come out of your mouth before you say it and if what you are thinking is as stupid as what you tweeted then shut your mouth and say nothing at all and put your hands in your pockets so you can’t tweet it.

    • MiketheMarine

      And put the aluminium foil hat back on you, reptilian alien. I mean, Run Paul not you BJ.

      • bjohnson55

        Whew, had me worried there for a second Mike, don’t want you thinking I need a tin foil hat. 🙂

        • MiketheMarine

          No, not us but I know Scoop has a picture of Ron wearing on.

          And Joe, apparently wears one on certain days of the week. We’ll have to ask him which days he wears his.

          • I have a whole suit which I wear on special occasions 😉

            • MiketheMarine

              did you wear it on Nov 6th, 2012. I still feel like I need disinfecting from that travesty. LOL

            • las1

              Yes you do… you didn’t know that I snapped this of you at our last party… now did you?


              • OH ROFL!!!!!! That’s the best pic I’ve ever seen of myself!!!!!!!
                Las1 that killed me right there. Don’t pick me up off the floor, I’m still laughing…

              • crosshr

                so cute the garment las1, please don’t show the inner garment picture,(the lovely emperor suit)

                  ABiC is a moderator so I think that “nakey duckey” photos violate the nudity policy. Not sure though, but won’t try… don’t want to get banned.

                • OY! Scoop would ban it- don’t want to scare everyone away!!

                  You guys cracked me up with this big time las1. Thank you! 😀 I needed that!

        lol and still lol bro.

        came across many of your comment MM. and can’t help but laughing very very loud.
        good therapy for me after gotten disoriented from the Super Bowl.

    • wow, good thing he never got close the the presidency. I knew he never understood the threat of Islam, but I thought some of the libertarian economic freedom ideas he pushed were appealing. I suspected he was an idiot on foreign policy, but I had no idea he was such a personal ass.

      • If we followed some of his ideas we would not be in a mess we’re in now.

        • warpmine

          On the other hand, if we followed all his ideas, we’d still be in a mess right now! RP needs to come out and state this was not his statement!

    • Ron Paul, I believe, was never voted to be the candidate, officially, of The Libertarian Party. That ‘gary whatever’ was! I am a Libertarian, but I am also a GI Brat and milvet and Cold War vet. I do NOT espouse the isolationist policies espoused by Dr. Paul. I do NOT espouse the foreign policies, or ‘the chickens are coming home to roost’ ideology of Dr. Paul. I was a financial victim of “The Keating Five”, so I do NOT believe anything coming from the mouth of the criminal named McCain.

      I believe in a strong America. I believe in everything that buzzard Kenyan Usurper is attempting to destroy.

      Don’t lump the Libertarians, by the examples and words of Dr. Paul. I would rather you watch YouTube videos of Penn Jillette, of Penn and Teller, for truthful speaking of Libertarian ideology.

      Dr. Paul stated that he was a Libertarian. Dr. Paul campaigned for President as a Republican. He had, long ago, written a letter of resignation from the Republican Party. Would you think it is “all about Dr. Paul”, and NOT all about saving America?

      • bjohnson55

        This is why I stated “Libertarians like you Ron Paul”. I believe the Libertarian organization should cut all ties publically with Ron Paul so good Libertarians such as yourself do not keep getting painted with the stupid brush this guy is painting your organization with.

        Thank you for your service and sacrifice to and for our country!

      • If you believe in a strong America then fighting a war of aggression in a far away land makes no sense. 1 trillion + spent. America is weaker because of the Iraq war.

        • clockwindingdown

          Then you must be real proud of “O”, he has us in so many unofficial wars right know and spending even more on those unofficial wars. America is weaker because we have a *** for POTUS that is doing all he and his followers can to destroy this Great Country! So stop with the BS, or blaming Bush. How about the 4+ trillion “O” has wasted for nothing, let a lone the interest we must pay on it.

          “If you believe in a strong America then fighting a war of aggression in a far away land makes no sense.” That is total bull squirt, war is aggression by nature, We were attacked on our soil in 2001, would you rather fight here on our lands? How about WWI, WWII, Korea, VN, etc., were on foreign soil. Do you see how ridiculous your logic is?

          That is one of the most ridiculous statements the lefties use, over and over and over. Not one of them ever puts any thought behind repeating it, if they did the facts wouldn’t back it up. Man this stuff gets old… and these snipers of the left, not one brain if all were combined…

          • Guest1776rcp

            You saying Bush’s policy of democratizing the ME wasn’t a huge mistake?

            I supported that moron and that stupid idea but I’m willing to admit I was a idiot for doing so.

            • clockwindingdown

              The idea of democratizing the ME is ridiculous, be it Bush or “O”, they both have the same result! Not that the people of the ME may not want it, but the powers that be don’t. It will take generations to change, much like communism has been creeping into out country over generations.

              We supported Bush because the morons that were options were far worse. Look at what the left has given us each time, Kennedy, LBJ, Carter, Clinton (probably the worse in all reality, and did a lot of set up work for “O”) now Obama. We had Nixon, Reagan (whom did a lot of good and tried to correct some wrongs, wasn’t perfect, but who is?) The Bush twins, which didn’t do this country any good, especially after 9/11 when our rights went out the window. But compared to Gore and what he wanted Bush II was a cake walk, although we still suffer from his TSA, DHS, etc., etc., etc.. With almost each one our liberties have been encroached upon, so much for freedom.

              It is pretty obvious we suffer from fools forced upon us by two parties that agree on the same end game, just different ways of getting there…

              I will say one of the great things about Reagan and Bush II to a lesser, was the rest of the world worried about these guys having their fingers on the trigger! When the rest of the world likes our leaders we are heading in the wrong direction, the rest of the world does not know how to be free people, they know how to be subjects. When they identify with our leaders it is because our leaders are showing what the rest of the world understands, not what it means to be Americans.

          • Raoul Miller

            Yeah..but ole Bush started the war…

            • clockwindingdown

              Sure if you discount we were attacked you might get away with saying that, but the facts don’t support that line of thinking. That’s like saying we started the war with Japan in world war II, sure if we don’t look at Pearl Harbor being attacked as our reason… I see what you are saying.

        • warpmine

          America is weaker more because of weak minded liberal/progressives indoctrinated in state run institutions we call public schools. If we developed our own energy resources as we should have for the last fifty freaking years, we’d be better off today. If we were responsible voters, we’d be better off. If if and more if’s than I care to mention but we all here know the truth. A 16 tonne weight need not fall on our heads to realize it either. Perhaps when we reset it all, we can set a penalty for even proposing unconstitutional legislation.(wishful thinking!)

        • 911Infidel

          “If you believe in a strong America then fighting a war of aggression in a far away land makes no sense.” Really. You mean like WWII?

          America isn’t weaker because of the second Gulf War. America is weaker because of idiots like Obama who ignor the existential threat posed by Islam. Islam is Japanese Militarism and Nazism on steroids.

          Iraq was the ideal battlespace to draw in hajji. Afghanistan is not. Pakistan and the ISI are just like every other Muslim cesspool, they like killing kuffar.

          Iraq was a lot harder for hajji to hide.

          And Saddam killed 5,000 Kurds and several thousand Marsh Arabs. His WMD’s were used many times. But he was clever to ship his WMD’s off to Syria three weeks before the start of Gulf War II, although he left behind 550 barrels of precurser elements for his WMD program and another 500 metric tons of Yellow cake which was given to Canada.

          All of this is in the Congressional record, ignored by just about everyone.

          But back to my point. You’re not going to be able to sit on your a$$ and ignor the conquest notions of Islam; or the aggression of China. Like it or not; until we develop a coherent strategy to deal with the followers of the 7th century pedophile conquerer, we will be in this for the long haul. Weakening the military is a stupid idea.
          So was leaving Iraq early. We won that war. We should have left Afghanistan instead.

          • clockwindingdown

            Excellent post 911Infidel, one of the best response to Iraq war and WMD, can’t for the life of me see why folks repeat no WMD when it was clear there were…

            • 911Infidel

              Thanks. Paleocons and leftists never let facts get in the way of their “logic”.

              • clockwindingdown

                So true, if it doesn’t fit the narrative toss it out…

      • This times a gazillion.

      • keyesforpres

        Yup. He’s an opportunists. Leaves the Republican then joins back up to get elected.

    • PatrickHenrysBody

      Ah, Mr. Paul’s true feeling about members of our military manifesting itself. How does he know what is good for a person suffering PTSD? Has he ever experienced it himself? What does he know about the treatment of PTSD? We don’t know the circumstances that led to the tragic event and by his comments, neither does he. It’s like Zero saying the police acted stupidly before getting all of the facts. It just made Zero look like the stupid one when he did that. I’m glad Mr. Paul is not our President. His foreign relations policy would have been disastrous for us and a boon for our enemies.

  • Makes perfect sense to me that Ron Paul would say something so disgusting. He has CLEARLY despised the military from day one, and WE have been here from the beginning trying to point out that fact…

    Just another nail in the coffin for Ron Paul…

    • mike3e4r7

      And this is why, as much as I like Rand Paul, I’m not completely comfortable with him as a Presidential candidate. Until he strongly and unequivically denounces his father’s anti-American anti-military foreign policy views, he will always be suspect to me. And none of that wishy-washy, “Well, my father and I are not the same person, we don’t always see eye to eye on everything” B.S. That just won’t cut it.

      • He’s not likely to denounce his father but there’s enough differences between them on policy which has come up numerous times

        • mike3e4r7

          I understand about not denouncing him personally, but I still think he needs to clearly and strongly denounce his father’s pacafist, blame America first attitudes before I would feel comofortable voting for him.

      • keyesforpres

        Rand now supports mass amnesty….he should not even be considered.

        • mike3e4r7

          I was not aware of that. Thanks for the info.

    • He does not despise the military. The military were among his biggest contributes (look on opensecrets) he despises wars of aggression like the Iraq war.

      • clockwindingdown

        Can you show us a war that is not aggression?

        According to POTUS, the Iraq war is over… Just saying you could name one of the other wars that we are currently in vs one POTUS says is over, why not point out WWII it too is classified as over…

      • rsfan1

        Would Ron Paul have entered Europe during WW2 or would he just have retaliated against Japan, as anything else would be an act of aggression?

      • KenInMontana

        Donations from the US Army $24,503, that from a force that has an active duty count as of 2011 of 565,463. Not much to really crow about.

      • keyesforpres

        No they weren’t…it’s just that Paul supporters that were in the military made sure it was known. Most military folks don’t let it be known they are in the military when they donate.

  • sjmom

    That’s sad. No condolences to the family or any sentiment in those words, but lots of accusation and criticism. Never agreed much with Ron Paul but respected his right to opinion. This however is over the top, unkind to say the least and sounds like something the Left would say.

    Well, Mr. Paul, thank God for people like Chief Kyle that have the courage to go and fight for what we stand for, things like freedom of speech. If it weren’t for them, you wouldn’t have the freedom to say the asinine things you say.

    RIP Chris Kyle. God bless and comfort your family in this time of great pain and loss.

    • Sober_Thinking

      Spot on.

    • Conservative_Hippie

      A very senseable and responsible thing to say. Unlike me, who is so angry I could spit nails!!

    • Ron is a critic of the Iraq War he probably doesn’t see what Kyle did as courageous.

      • clockwindingdown

        Ron is a nut job, he shows it mostly when he speaks, but sometimes when he tweets!

      • keyesforpres

        Ronnie boy is a critic of anything American. He seems (so he says) to love the Constitution,but he sure seems to hate America. I’ve never heard him say anything good about America.

        • Orangeone

          Yeah I know he’s here stirring up trouble. I have a biz to run to pay his higher taxes! He’s chumming and likely chooming with his hom boys in Mpls (gangland central and illegal alien hangout city). We actually have fairly low gun crimes yet no gun control, will be interesting to see how he spins things.

    Now is not the time to judge, you should know better Ron!

  • Joe

    I hope his Son disowns him

    • jollyjellybean

      I doubt that’s gonna happen nor should it. I am watching Mr Rand-y very closely for any signs of libertine-ism that has clearly infected his father’s thinking. The verdict is not is in. (look at Ron Reagan Jr- he clearly didn’t inherit freedom in the bloodstream….)

      • Orangeone

        Neither did Michael Reagan.

  • Disgraceful.

  • Spartan4Palin

    Here’s a question. How does Rand feel about this?

    The more these morons speak out, the easier it will be for us Tea Party folk to point out their failures on principle and leadership.

    Hey Karl,,,,,,,,I’m talking to you too, jackwagon!!!!

    p.s. I don’t want to hear about his economic brilliance. I hope Gov Palin starts distancing herself from that as well?

    • What economic brilliance?

      I have a post graduate degree in economics and I have as of yet to see any brilliance out of Ron Paul.

      • Then perhaps you should read Hayek, Rothbard and Mises rather than Keynes and you’ll appreciate their brilliance a little better

        • I have…and I bet more than you. It’s one thing to read someone and quite another to misapply what is read.

          Sorry to criticize your Messiah but RP is a blind squirrel finding a nut and that is why he gains very little traction.

    • MissMyGuy

      AS I said, if Ron is trying to destroy Rand, he is on the right track.

    • Rand has a lot of differences to his father. I thought that was obvious. He is his own man.

  • jollyjellybean

    Ron Paul has smoked too much pot apparently and his brain continues to demonstrate the devastating effects.

  • bongobear

    Makes me wonder if the guy has any compassion at all.

    • No he doesn’t or he would of never said that considering the man has a family. He might as well say he deserved to die. It’s the same application.

      • EXACTLY!!!!! That’s EXACTLY what he meant!!!

  • Sober_Thinking

    I find this comment reprehensible. If he is the face of the Libertarian party… then they’ll need to do some damage control. I hope he doesn’t speak for them all as a whole. This was a very insensitive statement and Ron really needs to apologize to the families.

    • jollyjellybean

      This IS what liberterianism leads to. Sorry, but the trajectory leads straight into leftism. Extrapolate the philosophy out to its furthest possible conclusions. It does not respect nor find any place for the Civil Society. jmo.

      • aposematic

        Leftism to Libertarianism are as opposite as N to S Poles. Don’t understand your use of some of those terms to get to your: “Extrapolate the philosophy out to its furthest possible conclusions.”

        • jollyjellybean

          LIBERTINE-ism. Go look up the French Revolution.

          • aposematic

            Well, I did say I didn’t understand your use of some of the terms. Lost in Translation!

          • KenInMontana

            Libertine and Libertarian are night and day:

            lib·er·tine [lib-er-teen, -tin] noun
            1. a person who is morally or sexually unrestrained, especially a dissolute man; a profligate; rake.

            2. a freethinker in religious matters.

            3. a person freed from slavery in ancient Rome.

            4. free of moral, especially sexual, restraint; dissolute; licentious.

            5. freethinking in religious matters.

            6. unrestrained; uncontrolled.

            lib·er·tar·i·an [lib-er-tair-ee-uhn] noun

            1. a person who advocates liberty, especially with regard to thought or conduct.

            2. a person who maintains the doctrine of free will ( distinguished from necessitarian ).

            3. advocating liberty or conforming to principles of liberty.

            4. maintaining the doctrine of free will

            One should always understand a term before one uses it.

            • Libertarian is an offshoot of Libertine and both have the root words or definitions for a reason. There is no denying that Libertarians are a little ‘freer’ with the social issues which is somewhat in the tradition of Libertines.

              • KenInMontana

                The root they share is “liberty”, that is where the similarities end.

                • You keep telling yourself that.

      • Orangeone


      • Liberal-tarian.

      • Kind_sir

        This has absolutely nothing to do with Libertarianism. It was simply an insensitive remark made by an insensitive fool (who by the way, ran as a republican). Libertarians are made up of every type person, just like any other party. We just believe in liberty for everyone. Basically, live and let live.
        These two statements may help you get a better grasp:
        (1) If ‘it neither picks our pockets nor breaks our legs’ it is not our concern.
        In other words, we believe everyone should be able to do as they please as long as by doing so, it does not adversely affect anyone else.

        (2) By the tip of a spear, do not force one to pay for things he does not use.
        Fairly self-explanatory, but to more vividly clarify.. Libertarians have no problem paying for essentials like police, fire, roads, national defense, prisons, etc. But why should we be forced to pay for things like (among thousands of others) helping Indonesians get their master’s degrees? That’s right, Google it.

        To sum up, I was a Democrat for many years, (mostly because of environmental & individual freedom reasons) but once I educated myself in Libertarian principles I had an epiphany. Libertarians respect personal freedom and a healthy environment much more than any other party. Please don’t ever lump Dr.Ron Paul in with Libertarians as a whole. While he might have some of the same views we have. He didn’t share nearly as many of our views as Dr. Martin Luther King did.

        • Misuse of Thomas Jefferson who was not a Libertarian and he even learned what cause, effect, and results are.

          Dr. Martin Luther King was never a Libertarian either…not even close. Ron Paul ran as a Republican because he couldn’t get any traction as a Libertarian. There is a reason for that.

          You proved Alfonzo Rachel absolutely correct in every possible way.

          • KenInMontana

            Jefferson certainly was not a “Conservative”, which would have made him a Monarchist. Jefferson was a “Liberal” in his day, what we now call a “Classic Liberal” a philosophy which gave birth to Libertarianism in the 18th century.

            • You are half right.

              • KenInMontana

                Better than choosing to remain half ignorant of the facts like yourself.

                • Uh huh…sure. Whatever you say.

                  So when was the last time Libertarians won anything??? Jesse Ventura? The nut job extraordinaire.

                  99% of the time you guys can’t win unless you co-opt the coat tails of Republicans. The only traction Libertarians are gaining now is because society is eschewing morals. Pyrrhic victory at best.

                • KenInMontana

                  You guys? Ah, I see. Sadly typical, someone points out that your position is in error and all you can counter with is ad hominem, and wild arsed assumption.

                • Yeah whatever.

                  You are devoid of reality and facts…but that hasn’t seemed to matter to you, especially your history.

                • You are way out of line on this one, L. I suggest dropping it.

                  Can’t help it if you’re in denial of history and fact.

                • Answer the question…or is it that no one can criticize or disagree with Libertarian moderators on this site before take unfair advantage in a fascist manner?

                  Then back up your history.

                  Just your account of the Whig Party alone is incorrect. Direct quote from Wiki: “A nickname for Patriots, supporters of the American Revolution”. The rest of your post is also historically inaccurate. You formulated an opinion based on falsehoods.

                  Oh you know what…NEVER MIND! You act like a rabid Progressive which seems to happen quite a lot with Libertarians so just never mind. It’s down to “When you argue with an idiot who is the idiot?”

                  Have a nice day.

                • KenInMontana

                  Where and when did I mention the whigs?

  • Rshill7

    George Washington lived by the sword, the cannon, and the musket.

    Ron Paul is hiding behind a quote from Jesus, which appears to be a situational admonition to Peter. “…all who draw the sword will die by the sword” The very next words from Jesus were these:

    “Do you think I cannot call on my Father, and he will at once put at my disposal more than twelve legions of angels?” (Matthew 26:53)

    Jesus wanted Peter to put away his sword. Peter had just cut the ear off of one of the servants of the High Priest. Jesus put the ear of the servant right back on like he were playing with Mr. Potato Head.

    In another passage, here are the words of Jesus:

    “He said to them, “But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.” (Luke 22:36)

    What doesn’t “make sense” is using this quote in this instance, Mr. Paul. I’ll bet your son Rand is cringing right about now.

    • Because he doesn’t know the Bible. He knows just enough to misuse it. The quote applies to anger and most especially violent criminals who wallow in violence and commit violence…SEE CHICAGO.

      Well said Sir!

    Another Foot in Mouth moment brought to you by Ron Paul….WHAT was he thinking! Levin’s gonna have a field day with this.

    • Orangeone

      And I cannot wait to listen to The Great One!

    • I certainly hope so!

      Alfonzo Rachel will also run with this.

  • E. Lee Zimmerman

    And there’s why most folks will never support Ron Paul, much less a Libertarian, for serious office.

  • deeme

    Something about this story doesn’t pass the smell test…He had a bounty on his head by the insurgents for 20,000 dollars..are we sure there is not more to this/??? How did a kid kill two of the best in the country..I could understand one but two??? I guess I’m just being a conspiracy theorist again..

    • Orangeone

      I haven’t read the details but if the two were sharing a lane they were more vulnerable. There is a wall between lanes and your focus is on your target.

      • deeme

        It just seems that they would of been watching each others backs knowing what he was going through..

        • I don’t believe he was originally there with Kyle. I think he just showed up but I am not sure.

          I’m not buying that PTSD bullcrap either. Go to Michael Yon’s website because he summarizes it exactly!

          • deeme

            All I’m saying is there doesn’t seem to be a shortage of 20 something anarchists who would carry out just about anything anyone wanted from them..if it was the right someones…reminds me of Ows…Heroes are dropping like flies..

            • When hearing hoof beats don’t think Zebras…THINK HORSES.

              • deeme

                That was before Zebras took over..


            “The sheriff said Routh’s mother “may have reached out to Mr. Kyle to try to help her son.”

            Bryant said the trio went to the shooting range around 3:15 p.m. Saturday.”

            I’ve read that Littlefield was a neighbor to Routh. Sounds like a couple of guys who were trying to help a younger man suffering mental issues.

            OVerhaul the mental health system!

            • Orangeone

              Thank you!

    • He killed them by shooting them in the back.

      That’s how.

      • deeme

    • MissMyGuy

      You are kidding right? An handgun at close range when neither of the other 2 were expecting it. What is so hard to understand. THEY WEREN’T EXPECTING IT.

      • deeme

        No I’m not kidding , why weren’t they expecting it..This guy was in trouble..He needed help??? These guys were the best of the best..There is no shortage of 20 year old anarchists though is there??

        • MissMyGuy

          Because PTSD hardly ever results in murder. Who could have anticipated except the Monday morning armchair quarterbacks.

  • Pancake3

    I guess Mr. Paul has just proven why the American people in large majority find him objectionable as a leader. Bet Rand Paul appreciates the heck out of this!

  • And Ron’s dumb ass point is? So it is written in the bible. That doesn’t make this mans death any less of a murder. Ron Paul was a CONgress critter fo decades and he has blood on his hands. He whines about unconstitutional wars, correctly, but he never filed impeachment against any president that directed these wars or used unconstitutional laws. That makes him part of the problem.

  • mike3e4r7

    ..And he who lives his life as a dishonorable dirtbag will die a dishonorable dirtbag.

  • Bible says a lot of things including things about taking the Bible out of context. Perhaps Elmer Fudd would do better to read that part of the Bible instead of condemning a man who has saved a lot of lives.

    And does the a**hat Ron Elmer Fudd Paul even remotely give a crap about this man’s wife and kids. Parents? Siblings? Family members?


  • mike3e4r7

    Alright, Paulbots. Come out and try to defend the indefensible. I’m sure you’ll try.

  • Conservative_Hippie

    Outrageous! And from a US Senator?! Treasonous!!

    • Rshill7

      He was not a Senator. He was a House Representative who retired last month 🙂

      • Conservative_Hippie

        I stand corrected. Well than how about from a “retired” Congressman? LOL! I guess, rshill, it makes more sense from reid’s point of view to say something despicable when he’s not in jeapordy of losing his job, i.e. what he really thinks…or stinks for that matter!

  • 27Words

    Ron Paul is an insensitive moron in his latest tweet and obviously doesn’t understand the soldier’s experience. Dr. or not…. I CAN see where a shooting range may feel more comfortable, more at home for a Vet than a living room.

    Even if he thinks this way, keep your damn mouth shut knowing the loss is fresh, knowing many others are not only going to disagree, but going to be hurt and offended.

  • Watchman74

    Sounds like something Westboro Baptist Church would say.

  • mikeinidaho

    I think Ron Paul has officially gone around the bend! qwhat an ignorant, appalling thing to say about a patriot working to help other patriots. Shame on Ron Paul!

  • Ron Paul was always a little strange. This just proves it.

  • A man who lacks judgment derides his neighbor, but a man of understanding holds his tongue.
    Proverbs 11:12

    Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.
    Proverbs 12:18

    It would have been wiser for Dr. Paul to keep his mouth closed instead of piercing an honorable man’s memory. Shame on him for being such an a$$.

    • crosshr

  • PatrickHenrysBody

    Has anybody noticed that since the shooting incident in Aurora, the propagandist media arm of Zero has been hitting on any shooting incident they think will forward their (and Zero’s) anti-gun agenda? Then the “unexpected” shooting at Sandy Hook. That has given them even more impetus to help promote gun control/ban legislation. They have been focusing on any angle and using any buzz word they can to push their authoritarian rubbish through: for the children, gun free zones, mental illness, the military, hunting, common sense policy, sensible laws, blah, blah, blah. It’s so obvious what is going on here, but only the mind-numbed (Zero zombies and the low-information types) are oblivious. If they’re not oblivious, they are assisting; however, I would place the complicit ones in the minority.

    • Orangeone

      And it’s backfiring. The Sandy Hook parent’s testimony slapped him up, Sandy Hook will now have armed security (again), stories of women and children who’s lives were recently saved because they had a gun (AR-15 too)

      • PatrickHenrysBody

        So true, Orangeone, so very true. They never do learn, do they? Channeling Rush Limbaugh.

        • Orangeone

          Barky is in MN trying to bully….we have solid Dem but our last Repub Gov candidate, who narrowly lost because of the indie is going to run in 2014! We’ll turn MN back red yet.

          • PatrickHenrysBody

            I heard parts of his little gun control speech. These authoritarians use the words “common sense” too much. They still don’t know what an assault weapon is. He says that most Americans want some form of gun control. Really? By most Americans, he must mean those who voted for him. However, even a small number who voted for him don’t want gun control. Methinks Zero is lying again. I’m sorry, he is speaking “the truth” to his constituents, he’s lying to everybody else.

            • Orangeone

              I tune out the liar-in-chief. I support gun control, I want to disarm politicians like Feinstein and Schumer and would love the SS disarmed and only carrying scissors for defense.

            • Orangeone

              So here’s what Ben Shapiro wrote for Breitbart:

              It’s soooo funny, Barky mentions Sandy Hook and Aurora but forgets to mention the Red Lake school shooting that happened right here years ago! Oooops, fire that speech writer.

              Mpls is gang infested and filled with terrorist-loving and financially supporting moooslime.

              • PatrickHenrysBody

                Thanks for the link! Interesting that Zero (his speech writer(s)) would forget that piece of history. He conveniently does not mention the other things that are happening in the Twin Cities. I wonder what the reasons may be…?

                • Orangeone

                  And Gov Dayton wants to put sales tax on clothing (we’ve never had that), funny on Twitter about Chicago wanting the Sneaker Sales Tax, both cities huge shoplifting issues, target being expensive sneakers!

                  Yeah, they didn’t mention the police cameras in Mpls in high crime areas of the city that help police immediately identify where the incidents are, the gang problems, the Somalians convicted of sending money and their children back to Somalia terrorist training camps, the drunken violence when bars close…..

                • PatrickHenrysBody

                  That’s all the Democrap-run states want to do to solve problems…overtax them or over-regulate them. It’s a good way to shrink their state’s populations. Michigan is also a breeding ground for Islamist radicals. Zero is a sympathizing closet Muslim and he will not do anything to force those SOBs out of Michigan and Minnesota. They are here to damage this country. They are not here to assimilate into our culture or become productive members of American society. They have no rights because they have proven to be more like enemy combatants than freedom-loving immigrants. There may come a time when they will have to be forcibly evicted from the country.

      • Can we get over this “blame America” thing? U.S Foreign Policy has been a disaster for decades, Iraq being the latest example. That’s not blaming America, or Americans but the idiots in government who think it’s good policy to bomb other countries.

        • keyesforpres

  • Guest1776rcp

    While I agree with RP and George Washington that meddling in the affairs of sovereign nations has consequences (see Jimmy Carter and Iran) this is exactly why I didn’t vote for him (even though I love the way he’d slash through the budget) because he refuses to understand that we already meddled.

    RP probably get his sanctimony from his belief that none of these soldiers would suffer PTSD because there is absolutely no circumstances where he’d send them off to war. He’s not a Dove and but a pigeon shitting on anything war related.

  • TickedWhiteDude

    He’s a 1 of a kind A-hole.

  • Conniption Fitz

    Ron Paul also blamed America for the act of war against American civilians on 9/11.

    Hillary is now blaming America too – she says, “America is at fault for the unrest in the Muslim world because of a failure to explain U.S. policies.”

    Right, Hillary, if we had only had a better diplomatic team to communicate our policies to the Mohammedans, then Benghazi and Tunisia would not have happened.

    Isn’t that your own little fault?

    • He was blaming U.S foreign policy for the attack on 9/11 including the military bases in Saudi Arabia which the terrorists specifically cited as a reason for the attack.

      Hillary was part of a government that kept those bases open and operating, antagonizing the Saudi born hijackers so there is a clear difference

      • keyesforpres

        Bull. That was the pretext they used. They always make up a pretext for their savage behavior.

        They do what they do because that is what their koran tells them. Our foreign policy has nothing to do with it.

    • Orangeone

      She should be looking at the lovefest pix of her and Barky Boy from 60 Minutes. They are the 2 to blame. Didn’t these two idiots also by air time in Paki with our tax dollars?

      Hey 9-11,

      We have someone calling Levin a “neo con wind bag” down thread. Thought you’d be interested.

      • 911Infidel

        People that use the term neocon as a perjorative out themselves as Paleocons. But then again facts don’t matter to them anymore than they matter to the left.

      • 911Infidel

        That’s because that person who said that is a Paleocon. Anyone who uses the term neocon as a perjorative outs themselves as someone who has no clue or any interest in finding out what the term actually means. They like to post links to places and people are equally clueless. However we at RightScoop had a symposium on the topic.
        We don’t let BS replace our facts like Paleocons do. Thanks for the heads-up. But in the future just point them to our page that explains the term correctly and watch their heads explode as they come back with some inane tripe about a topic they know nothing about.

        • PhillyCon

          Anyone who uses the term neocon as a perjorative outs themselves as someone who has no clue or any interest in finding out what the term actually means.

          Exactly. I was pointing out the “neo-con” term in jest, b/c of the symposium we just had. I commented on your thread, if you remember.

          BTW, it is one of my many pet peeves in political discourse, when one uses “neo-con” as a pejorative. It just screams ignorance.

    Ron Paul, more proof that thorough background checks and mental health examinations are needed before name is placed on the ballot, then updated before sworn into office.

  • I like many other veterans of Iraq & Afghanistan supported Ron Paul in the last election. That being said, I find it very hard to believe he would say something so callous. I would hope this is a result of his account being hacked. If not, he will have lost many supporters including myself.

  • At least the fear of Mark Levin opposing Rand Paul, should’ve gotten this fool to STFU.

  • Freedom Fighter

    I’m thinking with someone that has a bad-case of PTSD, Chris most definitely made a-p!ss-poor decision by bringing this guy to a gun range for therapy.

    If he would have let a trained doctor do their job and treat this individual then I’m sure Chris would be very much alive today and with his wife and kids!

    I’m not badmouthing Chris, just pointing out the facts of this tragedy!

    • Orangeone

      The responsible party is the one that murdered them not the victims. Many vets won’t turn to docs for help, and honestly would you knowing Nappy wants to label you mentally ill? Just look at what happened to the vet that called in, the SWAT team destroyed his home, he was arrested, his guns confiscated simply because he called for some help. This is the exact opposite of what we need to be doing for our brave military members.

      • tinlizzieowner

        If it isn’t a doctor that’s familiar with combat, all he’s going to do is prescribe pills, which was exactly what was going on here. 🙁

      • Freedom Fighter

        I was replying to a whole different comment……….bragging about kills is not respected by any real soldier!

        If you think that its ok to do so, then your not going to be in the Book of Life when the time comes! It’s one thing to protect your fellow soldiers from the enemy and hopefully afterwards ask God for forgiveness for what you had to do but when you start getting reeled into fame by doing interviews and brag about killings and lying about things that didnt happen then your soul will be truly lost for eternity!

    However, why would you take a person with mental problems to a shooting range?

    • tinlizzieowner

      If I tried to explain, you wouldn’t understand anyway. He’s not ‘a person’, he’s a combat Vet. There’s a very subtle distinction that’s way above your pay grade. If you haven’t ‘been there’, if you haven’t ‘done that’, there’s no amount of words I can use to explain that distinction. 🙁

    “Live by the sword, die by the sword” is a quote you use to describe a horrible dictator such as Hilter, Kim Jong-il, Hussein, etc. What an insult to put an American hero such as Kyle in the same category with the likes of Muammar Gaddafi.

    Just another “peacenik’ FROM THE 60’s showing his true colors.
    Hates the military,anti war, anti nuke, anti Israel, and anti American.

    Nothing new here.

    Just doesn’t make sense? Chris Kyle was a national hero who saved many lives and Ron Paul is a mixed up ‘would be politician’ with misguided ideas about many things.

  • white531

    Ron Paul’s statement caused me to lose all the respect I ever had for him. More important, he just denied his own son of ever having a chance to make a difference.

    I think at his age, he is losing control of what really matters. It is truly sad to watch.

    Wow. I used to believe that Ron Paul was not a loony like others said he was. Now after this statement, I shake my head. What on earth got into him? While it is true that he who lives by the sword does die by the sword it is very disrespectful to make this statement about our Navy Seals.

  • usajingoist

    Thanks Ron Paul…you sir are a joke. The GOP made sure to include you in every debate, even though you won nothing because we needed your supporters to show up at polls. The trade off was that you would get your message out. In the end, your voters stayed home and gave us this mess and NOW, when you spout your ignorance, they associate you with the GOP. Thanks. You are about one step away from being our Jack Murtha. Please go away.

  • I don’t want to imagine what would happen if Rand Paul got nominated, ran against Hillary, and then a week before Election Day, Ron Paul offends everyone from veterans to Jews to evangelicals.

    • A very salient point.

    Ron Paul on Navy SEAL Chris Kyle’s death: “He who lives by the sword dies by the sword”.

    ‘He who lives by the sword’ saves your pacifist A$$ over and over again down through history and sadly in the process, often ruins his own. 🙁

  • Guppymonster

    Symtomatic of how out of touch Ron Paul and his ilk are with America.

  • Linky1

    It’s controversies like this latest one from Paul (or a staffer) that make me detest Twitter even more than I do now.

    Yawn. On to the next crisis.

  • Ron Paul said it like it is. Yes taking the PTSD guy to the gun range was a fatal mistake, the same way Nancy Lanza took her defective offspring to the gun range. If you don’t have the sense to at least recognize this, then you too are mentally deficient or defective.

    • Ron Paul said something that no intelligent, thoughtful, decent person would ever say.

      If that’s telling “it like it is,” then whatever “it is” is pure, grade-A lunacy.

  • Raoul Miller

    C’mon,he speaks the truth as uncomfortable as it might be.

  • Raoul Miller

    As uncomfortable as this might seem,I agree with Ron paul

  • Raoul Miller

    One thing about American sensibilities,we are absolute. Just because we hero worship someone,it doesn’t mean all of their actions are good. Taking a man with PTSD to a shooting range with a gun might not have been a great idea. Of course this is hind sight. But dont slay Ron paul for his honest thoughts. A lot of people felt that way but were afraid to voice their opinion

    • With good reason. Intelligent people don’t “feel” their way to a conclusion.

      We leave that to the left and the incompetent.

  • Ron Paul is an idiotic ass!

  • Ron Paul is an idiotic ass!

    @K-Bob Intelligent people don’t bring PTSD to the shooting range, they leave it to professionals.

  • Captn Obvious

    @K-Bob Like playing doctor at the shooting range.

  • Captn Obvious

    @chatterbox365 Correction. You continue to take away other people’s freedoms. Seriously get out more.

  • Captn Obvious

    @tinlizzieowner In other words, we’re vets we can do what we like don’t you dare think otherwise. Great logic.
